Choosing a place to stay in Venice is extremely hard when on a budget, we opted for this hotel, which was in a great location close to all the action and the salon was overlooking one of the many squares. We chose it because it has history, has character, has charm, it oozes originality and the frescos on the ceiling... More

Except for staff all others -10 !! Dirty access, cramped rooms, bad access. Just a terrible place to be in. Climb 52 steep steps to reach a Worn-out hotel. Please avoid unless you can't get in any where!! Staff are good the only solace !! Rest terrible !!

There are times when one wonders about why people write negative reviews with a lack of objectivity. The Ca Malipiero is a genuinely old building dates from 1447 and is next to a canal so there's going to be a slight whiff now and again. It has a superb location near the Rialto and San Marco but for all this... More

This was quite the experience, never before had we asked to move rooms, but we had to here. We arrived, climbed the stairs, passed the sacks of laundry, climbed over the hoover, got our heads around the musty smell, it is Venice after all, to arrive into a very large reception room, we were checked in and seen to our...

Except for Ullah the asst manager, the other staff and the awesome view of the santa maria formosa church there is no other reason why anybody should stay in this place.. The one we stayed is the main property ( can't imagine how the other two are ).... the building is supposed to be 500 yrs old and feels so....... More

Recently had two short stays at this "hotel". I had read some of the negative reviews beforehand so I was a bit wary, but in the end, for our purposes, it was perfectly adequate. It's all a question of what you are expecting. This is not really a hotel, it is a Bed and Breakfast establishment, so if you are... More

We stayed at this Hotel in November and we were surprisingly pleased with it. I have to stay its not for every one but as long as you're an easy going traveler it is a charming little Hotel. Great history and close to St. Marks Square. The breakfast is not the best but sufficient. If you let you're guard down... More

We just returned from a 2 night stay at this hotel and all we can say is NEVER AGAIN. I'll begin by saying that this hotel MAY work for some but it is NOT what we were promised and nor what we booked and certainly NOT worth the money we paid. I feel cheated and deceived. #1 - I had... More

We stayed at this hotel because it was a great value compared to the extremely high priced hotels in Venice. We arrived very late, and likely received the smallest room in the building (we could barely get our suit cases in the door). You had to bend down to get in the shower (low hanging ceiling). The room was clean.... More
